The Battle of the Atlantic Anniversary Seminar: The Navy's Role in Resilience and Prosperity
May 2013 will mark the seventieth anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic, the longest military campaign of World War II. The dynamics of global maritime security in the decades since the conclusion of WWII have been shifting and complex, and this is reflected in the way in which navies define their peacetime role.
At this seminar members of the Royal Navy, policymakers, academics and maritime experts will consider the strategic importance of the UK's current maritime responsibilities. Discussions will focus on the Royal Navy's involvement in international maritime security, UK foreign policy, global economic development and the UK's prosperity agenda.
Please note that the event will take place aboard HMS Illustrious, which will be moored in London.
